Vaughan Jones

Originally intending to be a rugby player, Vaughan Jones came to teaching through a teaching post at the Chambre de Commerce in Grenoble, France.

Attracted by the idea of “TEFLing” around the world, he hung up his rugby boots, did the training course at IH London, and then spent a number of years teaching in Spain, where he completed his Diploma in TEFL. At that point he joined Heinemann ELT (later to become Macmillan) as a teacher trainer, and in 1990 moved to Tokyo to spend four years establishing Heinemann in Japan.

After 12 years abroad, Vaughan decided to return to the UK, and get back into the classroom. Since 1998 he has been co-writing Inside Out with Sue.
